    I'm always keen to correspond with folks. I already have a number of US pen pals whom I love writing to and hearing from. I'm particularly keen to hear from English speakers in countries other than the US, though I'm also more than happy to hear from our American cousins.

    Hi Jimothy

    It's nice to have you here. Why not take a few moments to fill out for profile page so we know a little about you, including where you live. Drop me a PM with an address or just write to me if you'd like a letter from Australia. You'll find my address in this thread.
    Cheers, Claire

    Hi Barbara - you are here.

    Re your address (it's always interesting to see how it's doe in other countries) - I get the Nova Scotia bit, but what does BOS 1PO mean. It totally confused Google Maps.
    Yes, I always look to see where people are, if I'm not sure of that part of the country.

    I can answer that :-) it's a postal code like in the UK. In Australia we use a 4 digit code. UK and Canada use letters and digits

    ~~~It looks like the post codes used in the UK. But I could be wrong since I've never been to or written to Nova Scotia.

    I am pretty sure all of Nova Scotia has postal codes beginning with B, and I think Google maps are confused because the character following the B and P are zeros not the letter O. The postal code format is LetterNumberLetter NumberLetterNumber.
    I enjoyed InCoWriMo very much in 2013, but I got a bit overwhelmed. I'll be reading the forum in 2014, but not actively participating.

    It's the postal code, in my case, for the whole town of Middleton since we don't have home delivery. All Middleton homes are issued a post office box.

    You are right. And here's your opportunity to write to Nova Scotia. I'd love a letter and promise a reply.

    edited to add: I thought it would pinpoint Middleton but I suppose you can do a separate search for that.
